R.I.P mate, sent Anthony a few things over the past year, remember him telling me that his vintage fix always cheered him up when he was in hospital.

Truly sad. There's nothing quite like this kind of news to help put things into perspective.
Rest well Anthony :(

Poor chap :( So young at 49. A terrible loss for his friends and family and indeed for the wider community. Lost too many family members and dear friends to that awful disease.

RIP, Anthony. MTFBWY always.

This is very sad news indeed. I got to know Anthony a little when I sold him an OTC Slave 1, and continued corresponding with him a few times afterwards. He told me he had finished some chemo, but I didn't like to ask if that was because the cancer had been beaten or whether it was because it was no longer treatable. I naturally hoped for the former, and I must say that his amazingly positive outlook on life, which was a tremendous credit to him, had me fooled into thinking my hopes were justified. Now tragically it is clear it was probably the latter, and even though others knew him better than me, this is still most upsetting.

Thank you Colin for letting us know this terrible news. Please pass on my sincere condolences to his family.

I am gutted to hear this - I kind of knew this was the likely outcome, Anthony had been pretty candid about the way things were going and even joking that I had better get things posted to him in time!

I never really knew what to say, how can you wish someone well when then are pretty much certain that it won't be - how can you be positive about such a shitty situation

I am sorry that I didn't get one more chat with him - life is just like that sometimes I guess

RIP Anthony, you were a great bloke

Bloody cancer! More must be done to help it's victims. Something that one day, maybe, will be a thing of the past

RIP to a fellow collector
